ShadowProtect Missed Backups

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am attempting to make a monitor for ShadowProtect backups to be alerted if there is no backup ran. The built in alerts for SP only trigger on a successful backup or a failed backup but if the job doesn't run there is no alert. I created the monitor below but I don't think its configured correctly, if someone could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated!

Table to check: eventlogs

Field to Check: eventID

Check Condition: Equals

Result: 1120

Identity Field: Reverse.Query

Additional Condition: eventlogs.Source='ShadowProtectSvc' and timegen > DATE_SUB(CURRENT_DATE(), INTERVAL 1 DAY)


I've tried altering the date when building the query to a shorter timeframe to ensure this is configured properly but return no results.

I ended up getting it to query properly by changing the additional condition to 

eventlogs.Source='ShadowProtectSvc' and timegen > DATE_SUB(NOW(), INTERVAL 1 DAY)

Alternately we look at the SP plugin table, so this works for SPX with the plugin installed:

table: Software
cond: Equals
Result: StorageCraft ShadowProtect SPX


Computers.LastContact > DATE_ADD(NOW(),INTERVAL -1 DAY)

Computers.ComputerID NOT IN
SELECT distinct H.computerid
FROM `plugin_sc_spx_h_jobevents` H

 H.`Finish` > DATE_ADD(NOW(), INTERVAL -7 DAY)
